“Anne of Green Gables”

The Clemson Area Youth Theater is performing their stage adaptation of the classic novel “Anne of Green Gables.”

Anne is a highly imaginative, free-spirited orphan who touches the lives of all who come to know her. The play follows Anne as she leaves an orphanage, engages in a friendly rivalry with her classmate Gilbert Blythe, saves a child from her deathbed, and gets into other adventures and mishaps.

“Anne of Green Gables” is the sixth Clemson Little Theatre show directed by Sybil Todd of Anderson. She enjoys sharing her passion for drama as an instructor and director of youth theater. Todd said she values the opportunity to help young people accomplish things that they never thought they could. “I was a very shy, reserved teenager and struggled with social skills,” Todd says. “Drama became a huge part of my life in high school and really helped to bring me out of my shell.” –Robert Hull
